Temporary closure
Feb 2020 • Solo
As at 5 Feb 2020 the trail was closed as a through trail because of a rockfall. Check on its status before going. In the meantime each end is open for a limited distance: 500 meters from Lushui, 1 km from Heliu.

Mecca for hikers
Jan 2020
Taroko National Park is a mecca for hikers who love mountain scenery, plus a bit of a challenge. The forest hosts monkeys, which are common, and even black bears. Please be cautious, these are wild animals, and never, ever feed them -- processed food is harmful to their digestion. By the way, there is a rope suspension bridge on the trail, which has limited capacity. Please take note of the advisory signs. The bridge has a great view, just don't linger.

Exciting suspension bridge in Taroko Gorge
Dec 2019 • Couples
This trail is fun and exciting as you will pass on a suspension bridge that will not take more than 8 people at a time. So you will need to queue up and wait for some time for your turn on the rope bridge. At all times on the bridge, ensure that there are no more than 8 people on it.. on the bridge you can enjoy views on both sides all the while trying to balance yourself.. haha, fun exciting experience for sure ! The views of Liwu river below on either side are beautiful with clear water and rock formations.

Lushui Trail, Taroko Gorge
Dec 2018 • Family
We spent about 10 days in Taiwan last December. We went to a lot of places including to Taroko Gorge. We had only one day at Taroko, so we planned our trip according to the Park's bus schedule. I think, the highlight of our trip at the park was our short hike at the Lushui Trail.
It is one the easier trail to hike at the park. Hence,suitable for us as our youngest was only 8 years old then. The trail started with an easy climb to the mouth of a short tunnel. The tunnel part was exciting enough for our children, yet at the end of the tunnel was a short cliff trail that was simply amazing. The view was breathtakingly beautiful and we spent quite some time there just enjoying the view and taking pictures.
I don't know whether the park has reopened the trail after the earthquake last April. But if it has been reopened, and if you are just looking for a wonderful view without exactly exacting yourself, then I totally recommend the Lushui Trail!

Unexpectedly good
Jan 2019 • Couples
The trail starts out very ho-hum and crosses an overly-warning signed small bridge before a tunnel (bring your own light) and the mighty cliff-side path section. Great views down to the road and the gorge from here and generally a pleasant walk.

I would give it a miss

There are better and more beautiful trails in Taroko. This is easy and really flat with really not much to explore. Rather get close to nature with other trails in Taroko National Park.

Nice walk above the river and through a tunnel
Jul 2018 • Couples
A relatively short hike along a cliff and through a tunnel right off the main road. Recommend out and back, but can walk along road to starting point (very busy, narrow road)

Elevated view of the gorge
Jul 2018 • Couples
This one hour hiking trail offers a nice view of the gorge. It snakes through the side of a steep cliff (with railings) and features a short hanging bridge, a short tunnel (it is not lighted so turn on your cellphone torch). Make sure you are wearing comfortable hiking / walking shoes because the trail has uneven rocks on some parts.

Moderately Challenging Hike with Views of the Gorge
May 2018 • Family
This was a moderately challenging hike we covered in about an hour. It was originally the main trail that the Japanese created to keep tabs on the Taiwanese aboriginal natives. The trail slowly winds up above the current paved road and gave us a higher and nicer view of the gorge and mountains.

Along the way there was a memorial to a couple of Japanese killed during the construction of the trail and a short tunnel that required the use of a flashlight about halfway through. We also read various signs that detailed the types and importance of the different trees found along the trail. The foliage overhead in a number of spots along the trail also helped reduce the heat from the sun that day.

Overall a nice hike.
